Lotus Herbals Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream Review:
I have always wondered about the use of a night cream in my skin care regime. For me, there was no difference between the concept of a day and a night cream . And I was happy either not applying anything on my face or following my CTM routine during the night as an alternate. But still a curiosity always remained as to know the difference a night cream could have on our skin. And this curiosity led me to buy the Nutranite night cream from Lotus Herbals. I have been using this cream from the last 15 days and can safely say that it does work.
According to the company :- Nutranite is a luxurious nutrient-rich night cream that helps renew the skin while you sleep. It works with skin’s own repair and replenishment system to undo the damage caused by dehydration and environmental exposure during the day. It boosts skin’s resiliency, strengthens natural defences while restoring firmness and smoothening imperfections. As a result, skin is supple and renewed in the morning.
Active ingredients :- Naturally derived Alpha Hydroxy fruit acids derived from grapes, nourishing Ginseng & Lily nectar.
Directions: After cleansing and toning the face, apply Nutranite in dots all over the face and neck area. Use finger tips to gently massage and spread the crème.
Skin Type: Suit all skin types.
Price: 295 INR for 50 grams.
Shelf Life: 3 years.
My take on the product:
I actually like this night cream. This is my first ever night cream and as I had not made much expectation from this concept so, by far I am happy using this cream.
Packaging: It comes in a glass container with a golden screw cap on top. Once closed, the packaging is leak proof and travel friendly but because of the glass container, there is a possibility of breakage and loosing the product. The ingredient list and the date of packaging and directions of use are all clearly mentioned on its cardboard encasing.
Texture: The cream is extremely light weight and vanishes like magic on the skin. It feels like silk in texture, very soft and fluffy :D. I have used many creams from Ponds, Lakme, Vaseline, Nivea till date but I can easily say that this Nutranite has been the most light weight & soft to touch and feel from the others. Maybe, they all were not night crèmes so that may be the difference but still it takes very few seconds to get completely absorbed in the skin. No white cast, no extra shine after application.
Fragrance: I love its fragrance. It has a fruity smell. Yes, I can actually smell grapes and berries in it. And the best part is that the fragrance lingers on which you can smell mildly even after 1-2 hours of application. I can continue buying this product just for its lovely scent.
Effect: It leaves the skin soft and supple. I have dry skin which tends to get oily in this hot weather but still I do not feel any oiliness or stickiness on my face after applying this cream. I even tried it on my neighbour cum friend. She has oily skin and the same result on her too; she too did not find this crème sticky at all. So the claim to suit all skin types is properly met by this night crème.
The texture of the cream and the amount required for covering the entire face & neck region
That small amount when massaged covered half of my arm area.
Once entirely absorbed within seconds. No oiliness or stickiness observed
I apply this crème after washing my face with a face wash. Very small amount of the product is required to cover the entire face and neck region. I purposely skipped my daily CTM routine in the night just to know the effect this cream was making on my face. And the result was always the same. Soft and agile skin with no dryness or any stickiness the whole night till the next morning. It had not broken me out. So this crème does hydrate the skin making it more smooth and supple.
I cannot say much about the claim of repair and replenishment as I do not have problematic skin. My only worry is the dryness part which is clearly solved. But if anyone is facing some other problem like tanning or pigmentation can surely try out this product. It may live up to that claim too.
Pros of the Nutranite night crème:
• Extremely light to feel and gets absorbed quickly.
• Makes the skin soft and supple.
• Small amount of product required for the entire face and neck region.
• No extra shine or stickiness on the face. Actually after a few minutes it does not even feel as if anything is applied on the face.
• Effect lasts easily the whole night. One gets to see soft fresh skin in the morning and continuous use results in a healthy glowing skin.
• This much product would easily last for 2 to 3 months.
• Divine fruity fragrance.
• Suits all skin types.
• The company has not made any unnecessary claims of glowing or lightening of the skin. Whatever claims are made are fully appropriate for a night cream and it does live up to the mark.
Cons of Lotus Herbals Nutranite Skin Renewal Nutritive Night Cream :
• Glass container packaging makes it more heavy and prone to breakage.
• One has to use her fingers to take out the product so better wash your hands to be more hygienic.
• Cannot say much about the claim of repair of the damaged skin.
• More amount of the crème applied can make the skin oily so be sure to take less product.
Finally I can say that there is a difference in a Day/Night crème, and one cannot be a substitute for the other. My Lakme Daily fairness day cream is thicker in texture which takes more time to get absorbed and even seems to give a white cast if not properly applied. It has SPF and gives a more matte finish to the skin where as my Nutranite night crème is very light weight and vanishes into the skin with minimum effort. It makes the skin more soft, seems to hydrate the skin giving a feeling as if not applied anything.
Ratings: 4/5 (-1 for the cons)
Recommend/ Repurchase: Yes, I am sure that a night cream is as useful as any day crème. So if one wants to take care of their skin during night time too, so better use a night crème. Its a good product which fulfils most of its claim and can be a good option to be tried out. I am sure to purchase it again till I get a better option than this one.
